An important and perhaps dominant source of dust in the Martian atmosphere, dust devils play a key role in Mars’ climate. Data sets from previous landed missions have revealed dust devil activity,

Using an Instrumented Drone to Probe Dust Devils on Oregon's Alvord Desert

It is shown that a quadcopter can successfully navigate in an active dust devil, while collecting time-series data about the dust devil’s structure.

Inferring Vortex and Dust Devil Statistics from InSight

The InSight mission has operated on the surface of Mars for nearly two Earth years, returning detections of the first marsquakes. The lander also deployed a meteorological instrument package and

On Determination of the Intensity and Size Frequency Distribution of Convective Vortices: Applications to Martian Dust Devils

Dust devils play a major role on Mars, providing a significant proportion of the total dust removal from the surface and its injection into the atmosphere, thus largely determining the overall

Small convective vortices occur ubiquitously on Mars, frequently as dust devils, and they produce detectable signals in meteorological data—in pressure, temperature, and wind speed and direction. In



The Lower Structure of Dust Devils

Abstract Measurements from an extensive field program in the desert near Tucson, Ariz., are used to formulate a quantitative dust devil model. The model is based on measurements of temperature,

Mars: Dust devil track survey in Argyre Planitia and Hellas Basin

Dust devils and dust devil tracks have been frequently observed in Viking Orbiter and Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) images, but the parameters that control their distribution have been poorly

Dust Devils and Dustless Vortices on a Desert Playa Observed with Surface Pressure and Solar Flux Logging

Dust Devil Populations and Statistics

The highly-skewed diameter and pressure drop distributions of dust devils on Earth and Mars are noted, and challenges of presenting and comparing different types of observations are discussed. The

Field Measurements of Terrestrial and Martian Dust Devils

Surface-based measurements of terrestrial and martian dust devils/convective vortices provided from mobile and stationary platforms are discussed. Imaging of terrestrial dust devils has quantified

Simulation of the Martian dust cycle with the GFDL Mars GCM

[1] The Martian seasonal dust cycle is examined with a general circulation model (GCM) that treats dust as a radiatively and dynamically interactive trace species. Dust injection is parameterized as
